About this course
Public health problems are becoming increasingly global and require global solutions. With freer movement of people and human and animal foodstuffs, infectious diseases and contaminated products can rapidly become widely disseminated. The health of a country’s citizens is often dependent on the controls and public health infrastructure in operation in another country. Infectious diseases, chronic diseases, obesity and protein energy malnutrition all have an international dimension.
